Default A First for me

Out on the big south facing beach where the waves are continuing to destroy the dunes finding some clad high up on the slope. Couldnít get down very far or I would have been washed away lol. Get a 15 on the nox and ďoh boy another bottle cap. Out pops this ring-yes! White gold-no wait itís not heavy enough. Stainless-no too much writing inside. Didnít have my glasses so I couldnít read it. Usually when I find something and donít know what it is I always figure for the best and of course get home and itís a piece of sh-t💩. Anyway marked QO PD950. Palladium. Crazy. Thanks for looking.
